Pinot Gris, originating in Burgundy like the other members of the Pinot family, has had a long history all over Europe. In recent times, versions from Alsace and northern Italy have been the best known. Oregon winegrowers introduced Pinot Gris to New World viticulture and in forty years the variety has become the white wine of Oregon. Adelsheim Vineyard can lay claim to being one of the very oldest producers of this variety outside of Europe. With this wine, Adelsheim's 23rd vintage, their experience shows – they've long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the "Oregon style."
Crisp, bright flavors have always been the hallmark of Adelsheim Pinot Gris. In the 2006 vintage, there is beautifully delineated Bosc pear, white peach, and Winesap apple, with a touch of spice. It pulls off the difficult feat of providing a gentle creaminess that lends a mouth-filling texture and long finish, yet still impressing as a wine that's crisp and clean.
Try this wine with mildly spicy foods (such as ceviche), not so mildly spicy Thai cuisine, rich fish entrees, and even classic oven-roasted fowl.
